More information about Final Jeopardy:

When I saw this Final Jeopardy! today, I thought it looked more like a regular clue than a Final; it seemed really terse and asking about a thing normally asked in a regular game! (Though, if you think about it, there isn’t a lot of alphanumeric anatomy.)

The C1 vertebrae, also known as “atlas”, is at the very top of the spinal column. It got the name “Atlas” from mythology, as Atlas supported the weight of the world on it. Immediately beneath it is the axis (“C2”); C1 pivots around the C2 axis.

Injuries to C1 and C2 are most severe and are often either fatal or would leave the individual paralyzed.

  1. The clues were mean to Chloe and a double stumper in Final Jeopardy.

    Would the answer “Atlas” have been accepted since C1is Atlas?

  4. I was a bit surprised that the judges accepted “University of Auburn”. The name is actually “Auburn University”, and most schools are very critical of whether they are referred to as “University of _________”, or “__________University”.

    I thought that the judges would have treated it like a person’s name, where it’s ok to just give the last name (unless it’s needed for specificity), but if you give a first name, it needs to be right. Similarly, if he had just said “Auburn”, that would be accepted; but once he included “University of…”, that should have needed to be correct.

    • A fair point, but often the judges will accept that because there is no “University of Auburn” (in the case of Miami University vs. University of Miami, though, different story.)
